    In the event of a long term program or permanent program closure, the program teach-out plan would be guided by the Teach Out Plans and Agreements Procedures published by our regional accreditor, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE): file:///C:/Users/vroberts/Downloads/teach-out-plans-and-agreements-procedures.pdf. The Program Director would inform NAACLS within 30 days of the closure with specific details on how the teach out plan would be implemented.

SUPERVISION Under the advisement and direction of the Program Director each clinical course (includes CMT 401; CMT 402 and CMT 403) is managed by an expert Medical Technologist Specialist in each clinical content area. Psychomotor objectives are delivered in clinical settings under the supervision of New York State Licensed Clinical Laboratory Technologists. The clinical hours and students’ schedules are assigned by the Program Director.
